Starting the Virtual DataPort Server

There are several ways of starting the Virtual DataPort server:

  1. Use the Denodo Platform Control Center:

    1. To start the Control Center, execute <DENODO_HOME>/bin/denodo_platform.

    2. Click Virtual DataPort on the left panel.

    3. Click Start (next to Virtual DataPort Server).

  2. With a script:

    On Linux, execute the script <DENODO_HOME>/bin/vqlserver_startup.sh.

    On Windows, execute the script <DENODO_HOME>/bin/vqlserver_startup.bat.

  3. On Windows, start the Windows service Denodo Virtual DataPort 8.0.

To stop the server, either click Stop on the Control Center, or execute the script <DENODO_HOME>/bin/vqlserver_shutdown or stop the Windows service.

To stop the server in “Safe shutdown mode”, execute <DENODO_HOME>/bin/vqlserver_shutdown safe. In “safe shutdown mode”, the Server stops accepting new queries but keeps processing the queries that are running. Once all the queries finish, the Server stops.
